Bid Limits (FY2016)
The Chief Procurement Officer of Higher Education has indicated the bid limits for individual procurements of supplies or services other than professional or artistic services, and procurement of construction. These adjustments are based upon the increase in the Consumer Price Index as provided in the Higher Education Procurement Rules. Effective July 1, 2015, the bid limits are as follows:
Supplies or Services (including equipment)
Bid Limit: $55,800
Bid Limit: $78,300
Professional and Artistic Services
Bid Limit: $20,000
Those construction-related professional services subject to the Architectural, Engineering and Land Surveying Qualifications Based Selection Act [30 ILCS 535] are exempted from the Procurement Code, and currently are required to be procured through competitive selection procedures if $25,000 or more.
A notice is posted with the Rules as they are published at the Higher Education Electronic Bulletin Web site.
